Did the school corporation receive the "extra" money from the state that was talked about a couple of school board meeting ago?

We aren't exactly sure what you mean by "extra" money. We did receive a partial state payment in February that we were expected to receive in September. However, it isn't "extra" money. It was money owed to the schools through the formula.
